Pensioners in Osun State on Friday protested against the former governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola, who is now the current Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, over non-payment of entitlement while governing the state.
The pensioners who were seen in different placards assembled in front of Osun State House of Assembly around 9 am on Friday.
Aregbesola, who is on the same day scheduled to commission the Osun State Command office complex of Nigerian Correctional Service, opposite the state’s house of assembly.
Some of the protesters alleged Aregbsola of mismanaging the contributory funds contributed by pensioners while in office as a governor.
Some of the inscriptions read, “Aregbesola, where is the N60b contributed by pensioners?” “Aregbe:- a true Muslim will not behave like that. Rauf you denied people their contributions right,” “Aregbesola, you are not a good leader to be celebrated,” “Osun state government, pay us our benefit.”
Others read, “Gov Aregbe and Oyetola spent our money,” “Paris club loans refund tranches 1, 2, 3 & 4 were misappropriated by Aregbesola’s administration,” “Aregbesola, refund the federal government bailout of thirty-five billion naira you invested.”
